5 out of 5 eggsFantastic performer!

Pros: Great speed, fantastic temps.
Can be overclocked easily. (not too easily though)

Cons: Could not get it past 4.3 GHz. Cannot blame the CPU though, my apartment is hot. Could probably do more under the right conditions.

Other Thoughts: Great price! Get this!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: Nice sized fan included, easy to install.

Cons: No cons at this point.

Other Thoughts: This CPU was part of a DIY build, and was an excellent addition to what came with it. I would recommend this CPU to all basic and entry level users.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Upgrade from Q9650

Pros: I have been using a machine I built early in 2010 with a Q9650 and 8GB of DDR3-1066. This is a HUGE upgrade over that CPU! If I had to guess, I'd say 20-30% faster in most things I do. I have only used this new system for a week but it is fast, cool and quiet. I am also using 18 watts less power than my previous system.

Cons: No cons for me. I didn't use the stock cooler because I didn't like it though.

Other Thoughts: Paired with an ASUS Sabertooth Mark 2 motherboard, Cooler Master Hyper-212 EVO cooler, G.Skill DDR3-1866, EVGA GTX 760 4GB and a Samsung 840 EVO SSD. Works very well together and much faster than my old system while using less power.

5 out of 5 eggsCore i5 4690K

Pros: For the reviews I have read this chip compared to the older generation runs 10c-15c cooler while under load. With its new instructions it chews up any multitasking I throw at it. (But I do not heavily multitask much) Overclocking this was amazing I kept the temps under 85c using Prime95 and under 74c using Adia64.

Cons: None at all very satisfied with this chip.

Other Thoughts: Full Overclocking specs (using a maximus hero 7 board):
Mulitplier- x45
Vcore-1.235
cache ratio- X35
cache voltage- auto
cpu input voltage- 1.900

I really do recommend applying an adaptive voltage to your chip, while not under load that chip runs at stock or below stock settings. It helps with the longevity of the chip and my Idle temp are 27c-35c in idle (using h100i). Super amazing!
Idle temps when on overclocked settings Idle- <=35c
Load temps <= 75c (depends on what program you are using). But giving my means of load to the chip it doesn't go above the 60's.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for overclocking

Pros: Much cooler than 4670k
Better overclocking support
Plenty fast for my GTX 780, no need for the extra $100 i7

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Using Hyper 212 EVO to cool this chip and running @ 4.5GHz with 1.2v and temps hitting high 50s and low 60s during intense load.

5 out of 5 eggsnot much faster, but cooler

Pros: -Lower temps then haswell brother
-higher overclocking headroom
-lower energy consumption - improved on-die VRM, etc.
-Intel’s TSX (Transaction Synchronization eXtensions) not available on previous K models.

Cons: still using TIM (but much improved)

Other Thoughts: Another reviewer said that this is the same chip as 4670k. That is just wrong, there are improvements to the VRM and now TSX which speeds up mutli-threaded programs, along with better integrated video(lol) and a few more obscure improvements.
It's not worth buying if you already have even a 2500k, but if you are building a new PC and want to OC, this is the one to buy.

5 out of 5 eggsGood incremental upgrade

Pros: Essentially a free upgrade bump vs. the i5-4670K. If you already own an i5-4670K, there is no reason to go to the i5-4690K, unless you are overclocking. Even then, it's only a modest bump.

Cons: Intel claims you must have a Z97 motherboard to use the Haswell refresh CPUs. In reality, most motherboard manufacturers have released BIOS updates to their Z87 boards to support the refresh, but it's annoying to see Intel making this claim.

Other Thoughts: This CPU is literally the same silicon as the i5-4670K, but with a better thermal package for overclocking. It's great at what it does and is an excellent refresh offering, but if you already own another Haswell CPU, you're better off waiting until Broadwell (whenever that may be).
